Not only would I love to have one of these pendants with my boys' silhouettes on them--but I got to thinking about how much fun it would be to use their silhouettes on a scrapbook page--and as a result, the following layout was born!

To make my own layout-ready silhouette of my son I:
1. Found my photo
2. Extracted the subject in my photo editing software.
3. Clipped a favorite digital paper to the extracted image.
4. Added a bit of definition to my silhouette with a stroked outline.
